Kama is translated from Sanskrit as pleasure, gratification, sexual fulfillment, pleasure of the senses, desire, eros, or the aesthetic enjoyment of life. Hot and Heavy at first, then smooth and intimate for the long evening ahead. Animalic, Ambery, Musky, Spicy, Heady, Floral, Luscious, and Honeyed smells await you.

Amanda Feeley Perfumer: Kama was an experiment that I intuitively put together. I didn’t know how it would turn out. I wanted to capture the ancient materials used in India for perfumes, or that I felt would have been used in perfumes. It wasn’t until a month or so went by that I began to understand the power of these botanicals on the human brain. I perhaps subconsciously or genetically knew, that these flowers, spices, woods and resins would have an effect on the libido of a man. Though it wasn’t until my husband smelled the perfume on my neck that I really understood WHY these were used. It was unfortunate that our children were awake…
*The quote is from Amanda’s husband as he smelled Kama on her for the first time, and his reaction to it on her skin. Perfume Pharmer suggests YOU try it… we did.
Monica Skye Miller: Kama is a take no prisoners love potion. On opening the bottle (my new bottle that I purchased from Amanda- the sample vial was not enough!) and applying it to my skin the first note that pops from this vial of Indian spices is a sweet cinnamon reminding me of my farmer friend’s cinnamon forest in Costa Rica. Davana, Cardamon, Ambrette, Patchouli and the beautiful florals conspire to confound and seduce one to the will of the potion… this sensual blanket of scent (and Amanda’s scents are always well balanced symphonies) conjures images of smooth cocoa skin, rich colorful textiles, gold jewelry and an evocative…sensual imagination. Highly recommended.
Kama is truly a unisexy fragrance, the spice factor and patchouli-esque musky theme would suit itself well to men and women alike.
Natural or Blended: 100% Natural
Sillage: gentle..perfect for intimacy
Longevity: 2-3 hours on my skin
Worth the risk to buy unsniffed: Yes if you like oriental India inspired scents.
